This morning

While the lady across from me lapsed into a coma, a very small crusty piece of mucus had attached itself to one of her nose hairs and popped in and out of her nose like a whack-a-mole with each inhale.

This went on like clockwork for most of the train ride. I struggled to contain my anxiety of where this piece of DNA would eventually land should its detach itself and tried to concentrate on the episode of Breaking Bad I was watching.

She woke up just outside of Union, unaware that this piece of mucus was dangling from her nose. She got out her phone and made a call. I managed to catch her eye and I made a motion with my hand to my nose to indicate she had an "issue". She just looked at me funny and then looked away. When the train stopped, I dug around in my purse for Kleenex because I couldn't take it anymore. If it was me, I would want to know.

While I was doing that she finally noticed what was hanging out of her nose and I watched in horror as she snatched it between her fingers, rolled it and then flung it into the aisle as she exited the quad.

Breaking bad, one of the best shows ever.

Season 5. Episode 11.
Best show ever is right.

A) I think I just threw up a little.
B) Anon from the previous post thinks our ride is clean.

I beg to differ.
